Navionics SonarCharts Now Available on Lowrance and Simrad

soanrcharts

Have you owned a Lowrance, Simrad or B&G for some time? If so, you can create greatly enhanced SonarCharts™ of your favorite boating areas with almost no effort at all!

In fact, Lowrance, Simrad and B&G models automatically store sonar data by default during everyday use, so unless you have turned trails off, the whole library of sonar logs recorded since day one may be residing on the plotter’s memory. All you have to do now is export from your chartplotter to your Navionics card and upload to our website. Once sonar logs are saved on a card, it can be plugged into a computer and the data is transferred to Navionics through the internet to generate new SonarCharts™ for you and other boaters after about one week.

Here is how: http://www.navionics.com/en/plotter-tutorial/lowrance. You can print these instructions before you go to your boat or read them on your phone while you are onboard next to your sonar.

Only Navionics accepts sonar logs from all major brands including most models of Humminbird (DAT and GPX on all models, GPX only on ION and Onix), Raymarine (SDF, NMEA, GPX) and Garmin (ADM). Check http://www.navionics.com/en/compatibility. Boaters can choose to share all of their logs at once or they can record and export specific files. Learn more about SonarCharts™ and find tutorials on how to record sonar logs.

On GPS plotters, it’s included with Navionics+, Platinum+, and HotMaps Platinum for compatible plotters. Owners of any Gold, Silver, Marine & Lakes USA, and HotMaps Premium cards can have it with Navionics Updates.

50% OFF Sale on Bass Boat Saver

bbs50off

We are half way through the summer so we figured why not do a half price sale on Bass Boat Saver!!!  All Bass Boat Saver products are 50% off at Radioworld right now.  Great time to stalk up on this amazing cleaning product for just about anything you own.

Bass Boat Saver cleans, preserves, and UV protects your boat, in addition to leaving a nice, waxed look. Fast-acting ingredients deliver a long-lasting and durable finish. After coming off of the water, apply Bass Boat Saver to a damp cloth and wipe the boat, motor, and trailer, as well as the seats, console, and trailer tires. We have all watched boaters at the ramp use glass cleaner or some other harsh chemical to clean their boat after a day on the water. These products break down the gel coat and clear coat. UV rays from the sun will damage these finishes also. With continued use of Bass Boat Saver, your boat, motor, trailer, and all accessories will retain a deep, rich color and will be protected from the elements. Bass Boat Saver is completely biodegradable and is no danger to our fisheries.

Garmin Pro-Staff – Johnston Brothers Notch Another Win!

Galway-Cavendish and Harvey-20140621-00644

For the Garmin fishing team of Corey and Chris Johnston, June ended on a fishing high note.  Corey and Chris have the latest Garmin fishing gear on their boat and competed in a Bass Tournament in Ontario on the Tri-Lakes, the Mighty Mucks Bass Open to be specific.  The yearly tournament takes place on Chemong, Buckhorn and Pigeon Lakes and Chris and Corey were among 95 other teams that were fishing for large and smallmouth bass.

After the dust settled and all the fish were caught, Corey and Chris had a final weigh-in of 21.15 lbs. which was good enough to win the tournament!  They took home a nice cash prize of nearly $5,000 and bragging rights over the other competing 95 teams.

Curve Lake First Nation 35-20140621-00639

On board, they used 2 GPSMAP 1040xs chartplotters, a GCV 10 sounder black box (for DownVu and SideVu sonar) and Canada LakeVu HD Ultra for mapping.

Great job, Chris and Corey!  Best of luck fishing the rest of the year!

About Bob Heil (source Wikipedia)

Bob Heil (October 5, 1940) is an American sound and radio engineer most well known for creating the template for modern rock sound systems. He founded the company Heil Sound in 1966, which went on to create unique touring sound systems for bands such as The Grateful Dead and The Who. He invented the Heil Talk Box in 1973, which was frequently used by musicians such as Peter FramptonJoe Walsh and Richie Sambora, and is still in use today.

Heil has been an innovator in the field of amateur radio, manufacturing microphones and satellite dishes for broadcasters and live sound engineers. In the late 1980s Heil Sound became one of the first American companies to create and install Home Theaters, and Heil has lectured at major electronic conventions and taught classes at various institutions.

He has won multiple awards and honors, and in 2007 he became the first manufacturer to be invited to exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

As an  annual tradition the Amateur Radio community holds its annual field day event on the last weekend in June. This event showcases the spirit of ham radio in a friendly competition but more importantly prepares them for emergency operation by setting up stations in remote areas with nothing more then backup generatorsfor power etc…

It is nice to see the local media supporting this event by providing some great coverage in local community newspapers…

Here are links to three clubs  covered by the media

Peel/Mississauga clubs coverage

York Region club coverage

Why not contact a club next year and plan to attend one of these great events and get a taste of a great hobby.
